You kiddin' me, teach? We've got at least one huge advantage over them youngsters learning to sail. We don't care nearly so much how silly we look making those rookie mistakes!! The same mistakes everybody makes, regardless of age. And hey, I was talking just last night with (member) captbillc over on another sailing forum. He's 87, and still goin' strong. So I'll be looking forward to your sage advice, from an old salt with 30 years experience when you catch up to his age. Now get out there and get started!!

I'm not sure what Dickens are, but I think they may be important and I sure as hell don't want them scared out of me.......Izzy
